eBay to add image based search on its mobile app

we all have faced an inconvenience that knowing a furniture or a thing that caught our eye, but failed finding it on e-shopping applications. Now e-Bay have introduced two new features named Image search and Find It On eBay, which lets us shop by searching with pictures instead of words.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are doing many roles in our day to day life nowadays. Thanks to that, now eBay provides a better user interface to satisfy us. So, with these features we can find any item using its image only. We don’t have to remember the name of any item anymore. As the result of the image search eBay will show exact items or related to the image.

All it takes to be entered on the search bar on the e-Bay app with the option to crop the exact item on the picture. Then you will be served with list of the exact items that you search for, or related to the ones.
